A balance between politically-charged modern themes,
and timeless stories built on emotive melodies, complex open
tunings and a wry sense of humor.

When an artist truly has something to say, others easily recognize it. This is the case with the most recent collection of songs by Dan Sheridan on his new release, Recycle.
Beyond the strong melodies and the effortless flow of words is a simple feeling that these songs may have always existed, and Sheridan's deft touch as a songwriter merely uncovered them. This is the magic of Sheridan's work, and what has made him one of today's most artistic singer-songwriters.
Never resorting to shock value or falling back on time worn cliches, the beauty of Sheridan's work lies in the longing and detachment of his characters in these pastoral landscapes.
